Classes, courses & events

Spring is in the air and with spring comes the opportunity to emerge refreshed from the colder slower months of winter.  An opportunity to embrace lightness in whatever form that means to you.  Is there an area of your life that you would like to lighten up?  What would it feel like if your body was lighter?  Your mind lighter?  Your heart lighter?

Write down one thing for each of those areas that you could do to lighten up.  Here’s my list:

Body – start walking again 5kms threes times a week
Mind – twice daily meditation
Heart – laughter – find the funny side of things more often and take a lighter approach

Here’s a quote for you.

And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy.  And you would accept the seasons of your heart even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.”  Kahlil Gibran

And just before I go some spring tips for health and vitality coming out of winter and into spring.

You may have noticed the number of people unwell with colds and flu.  Well here are two things that will really boost your immune system and keep you on track for the warmer weather ahead.

Every morning squeeze the juice of one lemon into a cup of warm water and drink before you do anything else.  Start your day this way and know you are alkalizing your body, boosting your immune system and so much more.

The second thing is to put yourself onto a certified organic probiotic.  One of the best is InLiven by Miessence and you can click on the link from my website home page to check them out.  The benefits are too long to list here but trust me, this will do you so much good as we know that at least 70% of our immune system is gut related.
I will be blogging about this product later this week so go to www.sarahcollin.com and sign up for my blogs.

Meanwhile enjoy the season of spring and all that it brings.

Namaste
